A MAN was pushed off his bike after being hit by a car on a country lane.

Police are appealing for witnesses and motorists with dashcam footage to come forward after the incident, which happened in a lane between Charterhouse and Mendip Raceway on Sunday, August 2.

Some time between noon and 12.30pm, a silver or grey Land Rover Discovery and a cyclist came together.

"The cyclist – a man in his 50s – was then pushed from his bike and sustained minor injuries," said a police spokesperson. "He did not require hospital treatment.

"The driver was described as a man in his 60s, with white or grey hair. He was wearing a short-sleeved checked shirt. We believe there were a number of other vehicles in the area at the time and motorists may have seen what happened."
